Since the series’ debut in 2011, Activision’s wildly-popular Skylanders has dominated children’s TV sets (and their toy boxes) with colorful characters and action figures, and luckily the series will be making its first ever appearance at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con 2014 with Skylanders: Trap Team.

Series’ publisher Activision announced that Skylanders will be making its debut appearance at this year’s SDCC by bringing along a playable, hands-on demo of its upcoming new release, Skylanders: Trap Team. In addition to the game making a playable appearance, the series will also be the subject of a panel being hosted during the expo, titled “Skylanders: The Creative Process of Bringing Toys to Life,” which is scheduled for Thursday at 6pm in Room 7AB during the convention. Panelists will include a variety of staff from Activision and developer Toys for Bob, along with voice actor Richard Horvitz and writer Ron Marz.

Skylanders: Trap Team will release on October 5th, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, 3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS.

San Diego Comic Con 2014 will take place from July 24-27, 2014 at the San Diego Convention Center.
